Interested in collage?

Edinburgh Collage Collective are displaying a new exhibition entitled Vinylism (11 to 30 May 2018) and hosting collage workshops during May on the Mezzanine, Central Library.

Vinylism is an international selection of collages from the Edinburgh Collage Collective 2018 Open Submission Project. The theme of this year’s project is the vinyl record. Like collage, vinyl is a physical analogue medium. It’s an art object and a vehicle for expressing ideas: this commonality is the basis for Edinburgh Collage Collective’s choice of vinyl as its subject.

Edinburgh Collage Collective will be displaying 30 of the vinyl collages in Central Library. The full collection will be displayed at the Tent Gallery, Evolution House, 78 West Port, Edinburgh EH1 2LE, 3 to 14 July.

Inspired by the vinyl record, Edinburgh Collage Collective are hosting two collage workshops at Central Library  on Saturday 12 May to run alongside the exhibition:
10.30am – 12.30pm – for ages 8-15
2 – 4pm – for ages 16 and upwards

If you like being creative and enjoy exploring materials this is the workshop for you! No previous experience is needed but please bring along any collage materials you have, e.g. magazines, record covers, coloured paper etc.

To reserve a free place on the workshop, go to or phone 0131 242 8040.

Edinburgh Collage Collective was founded in 2015 and is run by Rhed Fawell. Edinburgh Collage Collective was set up with the aim of connecting and working with collage artists, locally and globally, through online showcasing, open submission projects, exhibitions, workshops, and organised collaborations.
